#Tasty Tuesday: Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies

I am currently in the throes of some lifestyle improvements.

Nothing too major, just adding some intentional physical activity and taking away some excessive snacking.

I am loving the boost in my energy levels, but there is one teensy tiny thing that is sort of kind of driving me mad…

I get so hungry at night.

Every night, it gets to about 8 or 9 and my body’s like
shrek-puss-in-boots-feed-meSo, for this #tastyTuesday I wanted to spotlight a spectacularly simple little cookie that has been mandatory for my midnight munchies.

Free Time Frolics has this recipe for soft ginger molasses cookies that pack a lot of taste in each tiny bite.

My favorite thing about these cookies is that I just need one (okay, maybe two) and I feel my sweet tooth is satisfied.

They are spiced and chewy and irresistible.
Seriously, I made them for some friends and I quote, “these cookies are magic.”

Yup.
There you have it folks. The real magical weight loss secret.
These cookies.

Until next time, cheers!

    Those look so good! I would have to hide the rest of the batch to make sure I didn’t eat them all!

      Good plan! I bring my baked goods with me to different social events so that I can enjoy them vicariously through other people 😉

      Here’s the secret: after two, I brush my teeth so as to indicate that there will definitely be no more snacking for the night. It works most of the time!

      Me too! I’ll eat crunchy gingersnaps with my tea every once in a while, but soft and chewy really can’t be beat 🙂

    I’m a molasses and ginger person, so these look downright dangerous to me!
